We had dinner at LaCocina and it was a great experience. Our server was attentive but not overbearing. The food was excellent...a great value. When asked for recommendations for dinner, our server offered three. We opted for the Chilean Sea Bass which was delicious. The presentation and taste were outstanding. Definitely will return!

It is a very pretty restaurant. The dinner, because it was Thanksgiving was fixed. Typically, fixed meals are ok. I enjoyed the ribeye. It was enough for lunch the next day. My husband and daughter did not enjoy their dinner as much as I did.

We stayed at the Castillo Real Hotel where the restaurant is located. We only had breakfast here our last day but it was very good. The French Toast was outstanding and the chef made a special hot sauce for my husband's omelette. Based on this meal I would definitely recommend. Breakfast did appear to be more reasonable priced than the... More

La Cocina has consistently good, international food which is excellently presented. The locals regularly solicit this restaurant and I was really surprised to see the negative reviews my spouse and friends and I have eaten in fine dining restaurants the world over. Especially good is their pork saltimbocca and their rack of lamb. Also, their fish, including sea bass, is... More

I had a decent but disappointing Thanksgiving dinner. It was $40 for four courses, decent value considering that lamb and ribeye were among the choices. I went in with high expectations, however, as La Cocina gets some of the best reviews in St. Augustine, and was disappointed. The lobster bisque was good, but I preferred the one I had at... More

Family of five - three generations - arrived not knowing what to expect. Left happy and full after a delicious four course Thanksgiving meal. Delightful waiter and servers made us very comfortable anticipating our wishes. Lobster bisque was heavenly, pear salad was well balanced combination of textures and flavors. Turkey main course was fantastic - juicy and just the right... More

It is unbelievable to me that this received the number one rating in St. Augustine Beach. Our experience was terrible from start to finish. When we walked up to the restaurant the greeter was on the phone and showed no interest in attending to us. After a significant period of time, she finally showed the two of us to our... More

This restaurant is classic. We had their olive appetizer and for $6, it had more then enough for the two of us to share. I had an appetizer of seafood crepes for my entree. The portion was more than generous and reminded me of the crepes I used to get in the 70's with the rich creamy sauce. My husband's... More

One would never expect to experience such fine dining in a hotel restaurant, but this place is a real treat. Rivals a 5 star in any metropolitan area.
